Please Help Me
Hi, I'm sorry if this post does not fit in this catagory but I couldn't find the catagory that this post would best fits under.
I play this game called MapleStory, I know its a little kiddish but i play becuase it fun.
but recently obout every minute this error pops up...
wgav.eve - Allication error
The instruction at "0x0043433" referenced memory at "0x004014d4". The memory could not be "wrirtten"
Click on OK to terminate the problem
Click on CANCEL to debug the problem
So thats what the error looks like. Can someone please help me and tell me what is wrong with my computer or the game.

to stop the debug bit
tools ---> internet options ---> advanced
put a check / tick into the two 'disable script de-bug boxes'
IIRC you have to 'own' th eS/W before you are able to de-bug it .......
as for the rest
you are not alone
read this for some ideas
and don't forget to post back with updates AND your fix too

By wgav.eve I assume you meant wgav.exe??
If so then a quick google search shows us that this is a virus...

Sorry Duck, I too did extra checking and actually had hoped that you hadnt read this.. so I could fix my error..(read ****up)
Could WGAV.exe also be WINDOWS Genuine Advantage Validation tool.. if your getting errors it may be a handy idea to followup on the problems with the WGA tool..

Very good thinking there Undies ... but after double checking it appears that the process that belongs to windows genuine advantage validation tool is: wgatray.exe
So wgav.exe is malicious. Do a google search and you won't find one legite site about it .

im confused now... which one is it. i did a full system scan with my
spybot/adware thingy and nothing was detected.

All I could find on this was:
It seems it spreads through AIM as an invitation to go to a buddies MySpace webpage. It will install itself as a Windows service
and mimic the new Windows update for Windows Genuine Advantage
. It actually installs the service as Windows Genuine Advantage Checker
, but doesn't allow you to stop the service. It runs as wgav.exe
in the task manager as with System rights. It is a variation of a backdoor trojan
. Just like the actual new service (which doesn't get listed) it will send out its data everytime you reboot or logon, plus once a day.
In order to get rid of this you must boot intoSafe Mode
and disable the service. You can then delete the actual wgav.exe
found in the system32 folder
and prefetch folder
Apparently it's brought in through AIM and myspace.com...
Here is additional info provided by soemone else who submitted a HJT log over at Tomcoyote, it has instructions on how to identify and remove wgav.exe....
